Sierra of MacOS - Siri cannot make voice calls.

Hi guys,.

Siri is supposed to be able to make phone calls via the iPhone, the Mac, in the Sierra de MacOS?

Cause I can make phone calls (not the Facetime calls) fine if I use the Facetime on Mac app and click on the phone number, I want to call, or if I take a certain number of Contacts. But if I try to open Siri and make a voice command to "call X", he always tries to do through Facetime. Which means he's trying to make a Facetime call instead of a voice call normal.

Is this a bug or missing feature? Is there a fix or a workaround for it? I wish I could use Siri on my Mac, just as I do on the iPhone.


I observed the same behavior, so I think it's a missing feature.

And page (below) which deals with Siri on Mac shows a command "FaceTime", but not a "Call" command  (As I say, I used the "Call" command and observed the same behavior you did.)

    Thank you

    There is nobody here from Apple, just we users.

    WhatsApp has not been developed for the iPad. Ask the developers.

    The iPad can't make a phone call because it is not a phone.  But there is a choice of applications such as Skype to make calls over the internet.  The SIM card in an iPad has data only.

  • Sierra of MacOS: Siri has fake name

    I just upgraded to Sierra and tried Siri.  Unfortunately, she thinks my name is my wife.  No, we do not share the iCloud or iTunes accounts, and she has never used this machine.  On my iPhone, Siri correctly recognize me in my name and I am connected to these two machines under these same iCloud and iTunes accounts.  I've already put the option "This is me" for my own Contact card.  Curiously however it shows the little icon of the person in the Contacts for my wife and myself.  There seems to be no way to disable the option "this is me" on his behalf.  How can I convince Siri I am me.  Thank you.

    I saw Contacts pick up information from sources sometimes, without explanation. I suggest that you remove the card from your wife in your Contacts and create a new card for her. That should remove the icon "this is me" its data. Given that you and your wife do not share data iCloud, she would not be affected by this change.

  • FaceTime on MacBook: cannot make cellular calls but can receive

    Hi all

    I'm unable to make cell calls with my iPhone via the app FaceTime on my MacBook Pro.  However, I receive and answer calls on my MacBook Pro that are initially routed to my iPhone number.  I have confirmed I am on the same wifi network, I also tried on different wifi networks.  I also have the checkbox checked "Calls from the iPhone" on my MacBook Pro.  I logged in and out of my account of FaceTime on all my devices and reset the settings of my network on my iPhone and MacBook Pro.  A 'genius' has also tried to help me without success.

    Any suggestions?

    If the built-in firewall application is enabled, please disable it. In case you are worried about the implications of this step, the firewall generally useless when you're on a private behind a router network.

    If you have installed any third-party 'firewall', 'security', or 'anti-virus' software, remove it according to the instructions of the developer. All these software are worse than useless.

  • SOLVED blackBerry smartphones - cannot make outgoing calls. Get two beeps like busy tone with the Koodo Mobile in Thunder Bay, Ontario North

    This has caused me a lot of frustration.

    With my curve when I try to make an outgoing call and I get a busy signal as two beeps repeating themselves.

    I tried everything and the only thing that worked was a security wipe, so losing all my data.

    If I made a backup and restore, the problem comes back. If I restored it selectively through desktop BLackberry, database of the database, the problem returns. Koodo Mobile and Blackberry escalated support was not able to understand this.

    However, through much trial and error, I found that if I limit my identity or turn off the option to show my number in the phone settings, for some reason any he caused this problem.

    So I can't block my identity by using the settings on the phone.

    This can be the result of my location service and the carrier, which is Koodo mobile, in Thunder Bay in Northwestern Ontario that used the TBAYTEL towers for the service, the type of signals technology service. I don't know, and no one was able to tell me why this is happening. I went to 6 months not being able to make outgoing calls without losing ALL my sms, contacts, BBM, TXTs, bookmarks and other personal data. Only a security wipe would allow me to make a call - until I have activate the restrict my identity and activated the show my number option.

    SO - I hope this helps other users. I've been through three phones, thinking that it was the material problems.

    It's a kind of crappeh because I would not block my identity with a few calls. So with the curve BB on Koodo to Thunder Bay, I can't do that. I have not tried outside the Northwestern ONtario, but it will probably be the same, unless I am out of service TBAYTEL area.

    Such is life. Live with it.

    Difficulty easy but unsatisfactory.

    I ' lll this post in the Forum of Koodo so when one exists.

    See you soon!

    I did these steps including restore each database one at a time with the same results. I can do a full restore and the remains of the issue until I set restrict my identity forever AND Show My Number Yes. I also did all of these steps with the any other BB Curve 8530 and it seems to happen every ih in this area.

    I found the work around but it would be good to know why and if this happens outside the TBAYTEL towers that Koodo Mobile uses throughout Northern Ontario to the Ontario-Manitoba border in the West, to the North of Hearst and East of Sault Ste. Marie.

    If there are a Koodo Mobile, users who have a BlackBerry Curve 8530, I'd like to hear you just what I see if it is unique to the service provider, hardware, software and network type, geographical location, etc.

    Any comment is appreciated, as support Koodo and BlackBerry have been baffled and couldn't solve this problem and I hope that others find it so that they can save months of time and frustration, I have lived.

    See you soon...

  • Voice call of slate 7 HD

    Hello guys,.

    Do you know if slate 7 HD makes voice calls or not? I just bought a 3 g but found a card saying that the voice is not available...

    I have this real? Please notify

    Thank you!


    Hello and welcome to the HP support community!

    The 3G connection is only data.  The Tablet is not designed to be a mobile phone.

    You can try the various applications of voip such as Skype or Hangouts to make calls, but be aware - if you use the data plan of ' Free for Life ' that comes with a lot of HP tablets streaming data as it will burn through your tiny assignment of 200 MB, very quickly, and you can undergo a large beak of the carrier!


  • Voice call no. BBM on BBM

    A friend of mine to buy Z30. And voice calls on BBM do not work. Video calls work perfectly. OS and BBM are up-to-date. After reading a few threads on CrackBerry I discovered that it is not only him, few more people have the same problem.

    He tried to remove the SIM card and call hollow Wi - Fi, it does not work. For some people installing BBM voice seems to fix the problem, but for him there. It seems that this problem is somehow related to some companies, as most people with this problem are of T-Mobile Germany.

    On the same carrier as my friend (Telekom Montenegro) people with the old Blackberry (os 7) phones can make voice calls.

    It seems that it takes time to unlock the voice calls BBM after I installed the BBM voice application.  Don't worry if you don't see it just after installing this application, but it should appear shortly after.

  • Impossible to make FaceTime calls on iPhone 7 using Siri

    I tried to use Siri to do a FaceTime call tonight and gave an unusual error: "I wish I could, but FaceTime is configured with me yet."

    I'm able to get Siri to open the FaceTime app, simply cannot access directly from my contacts and apart from this Siri works fine on the iPhone 7, including SMS and regular audio calls.

    I tried a FaceTime using Siri call on 3 old iPhone models (5s, 6 + and 6s), all running iOS 10, and it worked properly on each of them, she was with both iOS 9 and 10 on the same model of 6s for the past year, so this leads me to believe it's a problem iPhone 7 (or an individual defective unit) rather than a problem of iOS 10.

    I checked a number of settings on the iPhone 7 before coming here:

    • Siri is enabled.
    • FaceTime is activated.
    • Restrictions (general-> Restrictions) are completely shut down.
    • iCloud-> contact is activated.

    Hi there jsf23!

    Welcome to Apple Support communities, it's my pleasure to help you with your iPhone 7 issue of Siri is not able to make FaceTime calls.  I use Siri all the time and have his power making FaceTime calls is another great feature.  Looks like you have checked a lot of things I want to check too, if I fell on the same subject.

    At any time, that there is a problem with Siri or FaceTime, the first thing I recommend is to restart the iPhone and retest Siri and FaceTime.

    Restart your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    If Siri is still underway on issues from a FaceTime call, try to perform a reboot of the force.  Remember, this will be a little different on an iPhone 7.

    • On an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 more: press and hold the sleep/wake and Volume buttons down for at least ten seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

    Test again and then try to check for updates.

    Update the software on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch iOS

    Have a great day!

  • Siri can not make phone calls

    After the passage of an iPhone 7 from an iPhone 6 via iTunes backup everything (well almost) works very well.

    However, Siri refuses to launch phone calls: 'sorry, I can't make your phone call. Each component seems to work separately: Contacts can be consulted and have found with the help of Siri, contacts can be called, and the phone is very good as well. I do not use any Bluetooth device, just the phone.

    I tried to restart, a soft reset, re - insert the SIM card, restart Siri and through all relevant parameters in iOS10.0.1, Siri in the lock screen as well as after having unlocked the phone with several of the contacts and the types of numbers.

    Don't forget: I can put any call I want, but not with Siri.

    As I have yet to find advice through Google I hope that here, experts can provide further advice!

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards, Kay Hidde

    Talked to the hotline from Apple Support today. They convinced me to try reset the network settings. However, this does not have the problem.

    So I decided to reinstall from backup again (their second and final suggestion): I stored the new pictures that I shot with the phone before restore the device with exactly one that I used when the new machine was delivered two days ago:

    If it was the same data as iTunes sent to the same device, it worked!

    Interestingly other small issues were fixed as well (for example some photos were missing in camera rolling despite the fact that they were on the phone) and the whole process was not too long, since iTunes stores now sync settings for the lists of reading, books, movies, and photos on this unit (except for the initial setup of the new device two days ago).

    In my opinion the iOS in the update interval can be the reason of this problem-free second run: 7A iPhone shipped with iOS 10.0.0 but I updated to 10.0.1 after initial installation.

    Thanks for listening and I hope, the description may help someone else in a similar situation.

    Best regards!
